General Assembly

The General Assembly (GA) of the International Union consists of the delegates appointed by the Adhering Organizations, the members of the IMU Executive Committee, and observers. Observers are persons whom the IMU President (with the approval of the Executive Committee) may invite to participate for purposes of consultation upon specific items on the GA agenda. Only delegates have voting rights. The IMU Statutes contain a detailed description of the rights and duties of the General Assembly. In September 2012 the IMU Executive Committee has endorsed a document that provides Guidelines for the organization of a meeting of the GA.

The GA normally meets once in four years, usually at a place and date close to an International Congress of Mathematicians. The last IMU General Assembly was held at Bangalore, India, on August 16 and 17, 2010. Detailed information about the GA is made available via a server maintained by the ICM 2010 Local Organizing Committee. A General Assembly Committee has been responsible for organising the General Assembly in Bangalore.

The next meeting of the IMU General Assembly will be held in Gyeongju, Republic of Korea, August 10-11, 2014.
